Great news for playwright/director and Morgan State University Alumni, David E. Talbert.

He’s snagged actress Paula Patton for the film, Baggage Claim, based off of his 2003 novel. According to Deadline:

Patton will play flight attendant Montana Moore, who at 35 is the oldest woman in her family not married. With her sister tying the knot, Montana and her fellow flight attendants become determined to put a claim check on a husband in 30 days or 30,000 miles.

Talbert got his start in writing and touring films ( like ‘Mr. Right Now’, ‘The Fabric Of A Man’, etc.). He wrote and directed First Sunday for Screen Gems, which was based on his play.  His new film, Baggage Claim, will begin shooting in September.
